Succession Planning for Public Sector

Wednesday, September 20

Deadline for registration is September 5, 2017.

Presenter: Joellen Earl, Co-owner GovHR USA

Have you thought about succession planning? Wondering what to do? Need a plan on how to get started? Concerned about what to look for? Then this interactive class is just what you need!

This program is geared toward employees that are responsible for hiring or promoting key players for an organization.

Participants will take away a plan on how to fill their key positions!

Key topics that will be covered:

  • Strategic Personnel Planning
  • Alternative Staffing Models
  • Identifying Talent
  • Employee Training and Development

Prep Work

This course is interactive and will involve some prep work before the class that may take up to two weeks to complete prior to class. This information will help you develop your succession plan. We will be asking you to:

  • Determine mission-critical positions in your organization
  • Survey staff for interest in other positions in your organization
  • Review possible open positions due to future retirements

A survey will also be sent upon the registration deadline date (September 5) to gather information for the course.
